I’m sure Bruce will like things on Manus Island

Talk about undesirable migrants: ‘I’ll see you on the next plane’: Bruce Springsteen says he’ll ‘move to Australia’ if Donald Trump is re-elected – after accusing the president of ‘dividing’ America.

He made the remark – which wasn’t intended to be taken seriously – after sharing his thoughts on Trump’s re-election campaign and its chances of success.

Pop stars now share the same ideology as leading academics, virtually the whole of the public service and most of the media. Lowest common denominator among the generally unproductive, I suppose.

    Fuck off Bruce.
    We’re full.

  2. Oh come on

    Such hilarious and original humour.

  3. Slim Cognito

    2016 all over again. How many of those who said they would leave if Trump became President actually did? None of them.

    Even Madonna never came good on her promise to those who voted for the Hilderbeast. Can’t trust any of them.

  4. covid ate my homework

    What do the groupies throw at Bruce these days? Compression stockings, colostomy bags? Just curious.

  5. stevem

    Doesn’t seem so interested in advancing the causes of the American working-class anymore, does he?

  6. H B Bear

    At last, a real Goose Springsteen.

  7. Lee

    Piss off, Bruce.
    We don’t want someone who thinks it is okay for men to share toilets with women and girls.

  8. Gerry

    Called The Boss ….because he’s an authoritarian to his band …..has the leftist trait on homage to authority…..

  9. Springsteen has been a phony for as long as he’s been around. A real working class guy (not).

  10. Karabar

    He could sing duet with Wayne Swine called “The Goose ans the swan”.

  11. stackja

    Most show business people are leftists.

  12. Rebel with cause

    Springsteen will never get over the fact that Born in the USA is sung without irony.

  13. exsteelworker

    Bruce” oh no, if Trump wins I’ll have to pay a US local $15 an hour to mow my lawn,instead of paying a Mexican $5, the horror “

  14. Professor Fred Lenin

    If he or his like areadmitted thay shoukd be compelled to spend the first 10 years of residence in Tibooburra ,and restricted to a 5 k zone ,like in Dandemic Dan land .
    I think its spelled Tibooburra ,its where NSW coppers post their undesireable members ..

  15. TPL001

    Nuh. Send him to Victoriastan. Everyone else by then will have nicked off to live in sunny Queensland (if we are out of lock down) and he and Premier Daniel Andrews can bask in the glow of bright new utopia. Bruce can run on the hamster wheel to produce the elektrissity for Dan to run his “you can’t argue with the science” super computer!

    don’t knock Tibooburra, Outback NSW – a Great Place

    There is something impossibly romantic about Tibooburra; there it is in the far north-western corner (Corner Country) of New South Wales. Tibooburra is 335 km north of Broken Hill, 1504 km north-west of Sydney, 900 km from Adelaide. It seems so isolated and yet it is full of friendliness and activity.

    Named after the ancient granite tors that surround the village, the goldfields of the Tibooburra region was originally known as ” The Granites” and formed part of the Albert Goldfields. Gold in Tibooburra was buried beneath deep alluvial muds and required special techniques to mine. As elsewhere on the Albert Goldfields, life was tough at “The Granites”.

    Today, Tibooburra is home to Sturt National Park, New South Wales Police, and the Tibooburra Outback School of the Air. The township has two hotels, motel rooms, cabins and a caravan park and hostel to accommodate visitors. There is a post-office with banking and internet access, supermarket and cafe facilities. The Royal Flying Doctor Service visits each Tuesday for a clinic.

    Things to Do in Tibooburra and Surrounds:

    The Gorge Loop Road: This around Mt Wood and the Mount Wood Hills covers the outdoor pastoral heritage museum, Mt Wood Homestead & shearers’ quarters, the Gibber and Mitchell Grass Plains, the Twelve Mile Creek Gorge, and the old pastoral remains at Torrens Bore and Horton Park Station. Wildlife such as Emu, Kangaroo, and Wedge-Tail eagles are commonly sighted.

    The Jump-Ups Loop Road: The ancient landforms that are known as the Jump-Ups are the remains of an ancient mountain range that have been eroded down over millions of years leaving the 150m plateau (Mesa) and the granite strewn plains which form the catchment of the Connia Creek (Ephemeral) which follows south-east into the Twelve Mile creek.

    Cameron Corner: The drive from Tibooburra to Cameron Corner takes the visitor through a diverse landscape including the Waka Claypan, past Fort Grey which was provisions stockade built by explorer Charles Sturt for his inland expeditions, and on to the Corner and the worlds longest fence; the 5,000+ km Dog Fence which was constructed to keep roaming Dingos of the north and west out of the pastoral lands of NSW.

    Tibooburra Keeping Place: Located in Briscoe Street, the Keeping Place features a display of fauna, local photographs, and indigenous artifacts of wood and stone from the Wadigali, Wongkumara and Malyangapa tribes. There are also arts and crafts for sale.

    Tibooburra Pioneer Park: At the end of the main street is the Tibooburra Pioneer Park which was established in 1999. The main attraction in the park is a full-size whaleboat (by Anthony Hamilton) perched on the top of some poles. This is a replica of the whaleboat Charles Sturt hauled across inland Australia on a wagon with the intention of using it to row around the continent’s ‘inland sea’. It was abandoned at Depot Glen near the current site.

    The Church of the Corner: This church was erected in 1963 by the Australian Inland Mission now succeeded by the Uniting Church Frontier services. It is open for use by visiting clergy by arrangement. It is a church for all the people of the area.

    Golden Gully: Golden Gully, adjacent Dead Horse Gully camping ground, is a reconstruction of mining sites and methods with explanatory plaques. The turnoff is 1 km north of Tibooburra.

    Springstein, My hometown.

    “My Hometown”

    I was eight years old and running with a dime in my hand
    Into the bus stop to pick up a paper for my old man
    I’d sit on his lap in that big old Buick and steer as we drove through town
    He’d tousle my hair and say son take a good look around this is your hometown
    This is your hometown
    This is your hometown
    This is your hometown

    In ’65 tension was running high at my high school
    There was a lot of fights between the black and white
    There was nothing you could do
    Two cars at a light on a Saturday night in the back seat there was a gun
    Words were passed in a shotgun blast
    Troubled times had come to my hometown
    My hometown
    My hometown
    My hometown

    Now Main Street’s whitewashed windows and vacant stores
    Seems like there ain’t nobody wants to come down here no more
    They’re closing down the textile mill across the railroad tracks
    Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain’t coming back to your hometown
    Your hometown
    Your hometown
    Your hometown

    Last night me and Kate we laid in bed
    talking about getting out
    Packing up our bags maybe heading south
    I’m thirty-five we got a boy of our own now
    Last night I sat him up behind the wheel and said son take a good look around
    This is your hometown

    He can’t blame Trump for that….on the contrary, Trump is likely a cure.

  18. notafan

    They support socialism but never want to move to socialist countries or countries where the majority are not white English speakers 😂

    Why don’t they ever nominate Cuba?

  19. Petros

    Obama divided America. How soon people forget those riots.

  20. Professor Fred Lenin

    Old Ozzie never been to Tibooburra but many years ago I was told by a NSW Detective Inspector that micreant coppers who were bad enoghto fire were sent there to disappear from public scrutiny, the Detective was in Victoria pursueing a crim from Sydney ,probably the only ctrim there , apart from Gladys mate .
    Sounds like it all go there .-+

  21. Jannie

    He said he would move to Canada if Trump won in 2016. He is a bullshit artist and a hypocrite.

  22. miltonf

    That pair of loathsome marxist parasite, ginger megs, couldn’t stay away from the USA.

  23. Squirrel

    I think we should be deeply flattered that he prefers us to Jacindaland…..

  24. mh

    Bruce has a strong attachment to Biden.
    They have so much in common, after all.

    * sniff sniff *

  25. Bushkid

    What makes him think we’d want him?

    Or any of that useless brainless lot. They’re not even making listenable music or watchable movies any more.

  26. Shy Ted

    Dancing in the Dark? He’ll be doing that with ruinable energy. The River? Send him down to The Todd at Alice, after dark. My Hometown? Sorry Bruce, it’s a sacred site, not your anymore. Brilliant Disguise? Malcolm McGregor dressed up as Cate.

  27. Anonandon

    I love Bruce’s music. One of the greats and his live shows are unsurpassed. His politics however……

  28. Nob

    Bruce’s great anthem to freedom:

    “Born to Run no more than 5km, only once a day, with a police permit, wearing a mask, and likely to be stopped and interrogated by The Authorities at any time”.

    Yeah baby.

    Who cares what the third best guitarist in the E Street band thinks.

    Doesn’t seem so interested in advancing the causes of the American working-class anymore, does he?

    Not now that they are most likely Trump voters. The monied classes cam vote for Biden and his socialist paradise since they won’t have to rely on it for their livelihood.

  31. Simon Morgan

    He’d be happier in Venezuela, as would that gormless twit Sean Penn. Or North Korea – take your pick you fuckwits, just don’t come anywhere near here. We’ve got more than enough idiots of our own, thank you very much.

    Harsh, but fair!

  33. NuThink

    I heard an interview with a journalist who caught Bruce unawares when he asked Bruce how can he claim honesty when he makes squillions decrying poverty. He replied that you have to understand the honesty of the music and the song. Absolute waffle twaddle answer.

    I think it was an Australian (cannot be sure who it was but it was a country singer) who said, Poverty is the only thing money cannot buy.

    Not just socialist countries – they don’t want to practise socialism by sharing their wealth with the poor in the USofA..

    Bruce Springsteen Net Worth: Bruce Springsteen is an American singer, songwriter and musician who has a net worth of $500 million. In his career spanning over several decades, he has achieved fame both as a solo artist and as the leader of the E Street Band.

    That money could go a little way to alleviate the plight of street persons in Democrat cities – like San Francisco.


    He didn’t pay taxes at the beginning of his career

    Joining other celebs like John Travolta and Pamela Anderson, who have been called out (or imprisoned) for not paying taxes, Bruce Springsteen has admitted to skipping the task at the beginning of his career. “First of all, I never met anyone in New Jersey who paid their taxes,” Springsteen jokingly told Tom Hanks in an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, ET Canada reported.

    But he wasn’t the only one, it seems. “The entire state wasn’t paying any taxes,” he said. “So, years went by and all of this time went by. Nobody’s paying any taxes. Me, the band, no one I know…I didn’t pay those taxes.” It wasn’t until his cover of Time magazine in 1975 as “Rock’s New Sensation” that he gained national attention and had to start paying his dues. We forgive you, Bruce.

    NuThink – good point. Didn’t the insufferable Bono get done for tax evasion over some supermarket he owned in Germany? As you do.
